liberty to speak to millions of liberals across america. it's been a sad day in america. we lost our man, senator ted kennedy. lost his battle with brain cancer overnight at the age of 77. every time he was on my radio show, i referred to him as the gladiator. he loved that. he was the gladiator for the people. a fighter, a believer. he fought for labor, for worker's rights, civil rights, human rights and social justice. kennedy was the gold standard when it came to fighting for the working folk of america and he left a huge footprint in this country. he was a champion of the cause, an unselfish man who gave so much to the united states of america. but i will remember him as a fighter. now, there's a lot of talk today about his ability to cross the aisle, his bipartisanship, his work, his friendships but he never compromised his principles. he fought for them passionately. if ted kennedy was on your side, he would be in the trenches with you in the 11th hour. you could count on kennedy. >> we still cannot get a $2.15 over two years. over two years. what is the price we ask the other side

sent this e-mail via the pac organizing for america today. we didn't win last year's election together at a committee hearing in d.c. we won it on the doorsteps and the phone lines, at the softball games and the town meetings. and if you're willing to step up once again, that's exactly where we're going to win this historic campaign for the guaranteed, affordable health insurance that every american deserves. the obama white house wants to reignite its support base to take on a legislative agenda. that was why organizing for america was created in the first place. but what is the president actually asking his supporters to campaign for? there is no plan yet. there's no consensus bill in the house and the senate. maybe the mob will provide the enemy -- would provide enough motivation, enough of an enemy to rally the liberal base, but at some point obama supporters will ask what exactly are we fighting for? not just what are we fighting against. for example, no show has been more vigilant about the public option than this one. ed schultz has pushed it day in and day out. but today, when

interesting is that i think the white house and its organizing arm, the dnc and organizing for america, they were a little slow to realize this, that their organizers at their core, they're going to try to pack the halls themselves, they're sending out emails and organizing. i think the picture will be interesting to see the next round of town halls, if they find that they cannot pack the room before the other side does. that's the thing to watch. >> there's a lot of organizing going on out there, involved with the people that did swift-boating against john kerry. and a lot of money involved in the health care industry. one man raising $20 million for spending in this industry. clearly there's a lot of grassroots as well. thank you, jim vandehei. the very successful plitco. >> and lynn sweet. from the "chicago sun-times." right now, it's time for the ed show, with ed schultz. >> i'm ed schultz. this is "the ed show." good evening, americans, live from 30 rock in new york, it's "the ed show" on msnbc, good to be back after a week's vacation. tonight, it's an uprising, angry old white fo

paolo orio. but they do have trouble with drug gangs there as in many places in south america. and especially in the suburbs, we've been down there. gangs sort of run free and this guy sort of presented himself as somebody trying to fight that and also fight corruption. now it's the talk of the nation that he's accused of not only ordering these murders but possibly using them on his show. i mean, his show was sometimes there at the scene of crimes before the police got there. they claim that they just had great sources and they were, you know, on the inside trying to fight all of this violence. but the police say otherwise. they say he was not only involved in it, but possibly behind at least five of these murders. >> unbelievable. michelle, thanks so much. we appreciate it. tamron, what a crazy story. i guess the first tip should have been when this guy's getting there before the police, you know something. >> it sounds like a "csi" whatever those shows "law & order" kind of things. my personal favorite is a strange story. we both pause and both said wow because your mind can't p
